Even the pros hate their race photos, as it turns out. A digression from the chronological tale of my training to wade in the shallows of vanity. Yep, we're going there.
GREAT post and an honest portrayal of our body insecurities regardless of our age. Yep, its easy to revert to high school body image issues. I loved what you said about being grateful for the strength of our bodies and how in the moment, during training and racing, what it looks like doesn't matter. What matters is the beauty of it working miraculously stride after stride, lap after lap, hill after cycled hill.
